New SimCorp Journal article explores increased focus on Data Lineage

SimCorp, a leading provider of investment management solutions and services for the global financial services industry has released an article by Olivier Kenji Mathurin, Head of Strategic Research at AIM Software titled, “Data Lineage: Where did this data come from?”

The article discusses the challenges asset managers are likely to face in the coming years around managing data lineage and handling increasing requests from regulators and client auditors. It concludes by exploring best practices that can be adopted now to make decisive progress and build a culture of trust in data. 

Read the article to learn about:

  • Why buy-side firms (and regulators) increasingly focus on data lineage
  • How data lineage concretely impacts buy-side firms
  • Why firms must combine multiple approaches to improve the status-quo
  • What best practices can be leveraged to start building a culture of trust in your data

“Regulation will continue to change, analytic requirements will evolve and business activities will advance to handle more complex products,” said Olivier Kenji Mathurin, Head of Strategic Research at AIM Software. “The only way firms can prepare for this constant change is to strategically design and plan for a consistent way to manage data flows, enforce data governance standards, and make the lineage information actionable to the rest of the organization.”

This articles comes on the heels of Iast month’s piece by InvestTech Systems Consulting on data management which discusses how establishing an effective EDM strategy is key to navigating today’s complexities of EDM technology and exploding data demands.
